  1. The best thing they could do with SOB is hold a huge end-of-the-year bonfire. I would be first in line to roast a marshmellow over the smoldering piece of crap.
  2. Does anyone have any pics of Flight Commander? If you do, please share. Thanks!

    I'm gonna say that with SOB as the primary focus right now, plus the company buy-out, there is little to no chance that anything significant will be added for next year. But by the time 2008 rolls around CF will have their crap together and be planning something amazing.
  4. Due to a recent "business decision", Winterfest is cancelled for 2006 and all tickets already sold are being refunded.
  5. Sometime in June - the majority of the coporate staff is terminated. The Ecology (Custodial) Dept. gets a 54% budget cut. The Rides Dept. gets a 40% cut. Winterfest's last year will be this year. Also, Tech Services/Maintenence will soon undergo staffing cuts and the Rides Dept. will shift their primary concentration to Capacity and Cleanliness, rather than meticulous safety.
  6. Just ride it you pansy.
  7. For July 1-4, the park closes at 11.
  8. Only some rides close early, and they don't close for good. Today (saturday) Face/Off didn't close until 11 and Congo Falls only closed from 10-1020. And today wasn't packed at all, there were not any lines after the fireworks.
  9. for the sake of literacy, learn how to spell/type/use english correctly before posting again. your grammar and spelling is atrocious.

    Hmm I never did hear about that. Well as long as it works good and is (hopefully) smoother, then I'll be happy.

    Thanks, although that sucks. By the way why are they retracking it in the first place?

    Is SOB not ready yet because of the re-tracking?
  13. What's the answer/circumstances to the casualties question?
  14. So I worked at Winterfest this season, and am going to return for the summer, hoping to work rides. I wanted input from those with such experience as to why or why not working rides is fun, and I was wondering how the management assigns rides to associates. Thanks guys.
  15. So the track is lying outside, thats cool... But the cars are in the FOF building?
  16. That Cobra stuff is crazy...I'll have to look for it next time I go.
  17. I'm new here at ExtremePKI, and I have been reading up on some PKI history lately. I was curious to know from you experts where exactly the "field" is that Cobra is dismantled in. I read that, apparantly, you can see it from the top of SOB. Thanks guys, and cool site.
  18. I would pull vortex and add a suspended RC (like top gun, except bigger and more than decent, like what the bat could have been) and put a stand up or other unique style where top gun was, after burning down top gun and sending it to hell.
  19. Cobra was also removed because the Japanese Manufacturer closed its USA office, making it difficult and expensive to get parts and stuff. plus it was losing popularity. But yeah I was just passing news I heard while working at the park- at first the sinking thing sounded ridiculous but a few people I worked with confirmed it...
  20. Worked there this winter, heard that Vortex is sinking... a plausible explanation to why it may be removed/relocated. probably not by 2007 though.
